Thanks to Iberia Cadetes‘ program, the Spanish airline, today 6 August 2019, opened a call for the financing of 50% of the cost of training for Aviator Pilots, the company is betting on the training of professionals who join its ranks as a strategy for the next generation of crew and address the pilot deficit, for its parent and nine subsidiaries.
The first school to join this initiative is FTE Jerez, a Spanish school with 30 years in the training and instruction market with more than 2,000 graduate pilots, with atPL ab initio training. Twenty candidates will be part of the first generation, starting their training next November 2019.
Iberia will participate in the training of students, evaluate their progress and performance, so that at the end of their studies, the cadets can join the companies of the Iberia Group and, in this way, begin with the return of Iberia’s contribution to their studies once they have started work. At the same time, they want to promote the profession of pilot among young people, helping them in the financing of their training in very advantageous conditions, so that they can develop their vocation.
We launched our Iberia Cadets program because we want to have the best qualified pilots in the market, the professionals who allow us to offer an excellent service to our customers. We have full confidence that the training offered by FTEJerez as part of our Iberia Cadets program is a guarantee of success. We want to accompany the people who join this project so that, from the first moment, we can transmit the values of Iberia to them.”
